6:00 pm
school. something. didn't do well. it was tragic. again, thank you for watching us tonight. i am bill o'reilly. please always remember the spin stops here in massachusetts because we are definitely looking out for you. >> this is a fox news alert just a short time ago members of the obama administration briefed members of the -- in syria. he has not said what if any military action he will take in syria. lawmakers voted against military action which is a huge defeat to british prime minister james cameron. >> john, lawmakers who received that briefing this evening said they came away with the
6:01 pm
impression that the president still has not made a final decision about the strike. >> the president is going to have to make his case to the congress and to the american people. i think before he takes any action. the problem that he finds himself in and has placed us in is if he does not take action now. a paper tiger to statements the rest of the world. >> senior white house official tells fox that the uss stout is now in position off the coast of syria. for a period of time there will be five destroyers in the area. the pentagon has also opted to keep two aircraft carriers in the persian gulf. the pentagon is not concerned
6:02 pm
about reports from russia that it is sending surface -- two surface ships to the mediterranean. that was expected u.s. defense officials tell fox that won't deter any of the current plans. a vote is unlikely to deter the president. the un weapons inspectors are slated to leave syria saturday morning and the president is unlikely to order a strike while those inspectors are still on the ground. sean? >> jennifer, thank you. joining me now kentucky senator rand paul. thank you for being with us. >> glad to be with you, sean. do you think this is a wise decision and do you think that the president needs congressional aprove al? >> absolutely he needs congressional approval.
6:03 pm
the constitution is cleave r on this subject. we vested the power to go to war in congress. without question congress should vote on this and he is going against the constitution and it will be an unlawful act if he takes military action without having them vote on it. >> i think these words are important. this was before they took office. joe biden says he would impeach somebody that would do what he was about to do. >> i was chairman of the judiciary committee i teach this this is something i know. i got together and to write a piece pointing out the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war
6:04 pm
against 70 million people unless we are attacked. and if he does, i would move to impeach him. the house obviously would have to do that. i don't say it lightly. i say it because they should understand that what they were threatening and saying and what was adding up to be what looked like the rest of the war would be the most disastrous thing that could be done that i can think of. >> could this be more clear? >> well, here is the funny ing about this. biden presides over the senate. he would preside over his own impeachment. i suggest he come to the senate floor and reiterate his own position. he would be impeaching his administration. they need to come before a joint session of congress and lay out their case and if they want to
6:05 pm
take the nation to war they need to convince the majority of congress. they won't risk a vote because they are worried that they could be defeated. it happened ip t eed in the bri parliament. we are horrified by it. we would like to know who did it. which side did it but we are not exciteed to get involved in a new war right now. i would like to stop the president and we shouldn't engage in it in a constitution al fashion. >> it seems like the british were quick to jump on the president's side it seems like whatever momentum they had to go forward with this seems to be stopped. do you think that is emerging in washington? >> this is what joe biden is talking about. the separation of powers allows
6:06 pm
for people not to emotionally go to war. you have to think about it. when i think about war i think about one of my sons or your sons going off to war. we should fight to win and for an american cause. i can't see fighting to impose -- law in syria. i can't see sending my son to fight against rebels against christians and fight on the same side as al qaeda. there are so many ironies and muddling nature to this and this are potential repercussions. if he launches this little attack with a few cruise misslles. it won't stop nuclear weapons, but it may cause a gas attack on israelis. >> and it may start an all out
6:07 pm
war in the middle east. there is a question about u.s. intelligence. they are still working through an assessment. we haven't ascertained that it was assad that is responsible for the attack. it is not a slam dunk. don't we have to be sure and certain that he is responsible before we make this decision? >> you know, some commentators have been asking an important question. he asked the latin phrase whose benefit is this? >> does it benefit assad to use chemical weapons? >> absolutely not. it seems to be to the benefit of the rebels. i don't know who did, but i've been presented with no evidence yet and i would like to see the evidence before we go off half cocked into a war. >> if the president does this,
6:08 pm
we are going to be using the u.s. military to help support and back al qaeda. it seems the likely successor would be radical islamists with al qaeda ties. do you agree with that assessment? >> they say that al qaeda is the fiercest fighters and they will be a civil war and al kid may take over. what if the moderate islamic rebels take over. you will have christians persecuted for blasphemy and there is a woman who they say committed that and she said i only drank out of the same cup as my fellow workers. that is not something i want to send our boys and girls to die
6:09 pm
for. >> i want to ask you about the question that you and others are involved into defund obamacare. senator, every republican that ran for office ran against obama care that they would repeal and replace obama care. here is one opportunity to get rid of it by defunding it and funding the entire rest of the government and there is fierce and unexplainable mysterious reluctance and resistance by your fellow republicans. are they surrendering? >> i was elected to fight to stop obamacare and i will do everything possible to stop it. i have been in 40 cities in kentucky and several cities around the country and every location that i show up. people come up to me and say stand up and we appreciate you
6:10 pm
standing up against the president when he is wrong. it is going to be a disaster for our economy. >> we appreciate you joining us and there is going to be a big rally with the tea party and you will be speaking on 9/10 in dc. thank you for being with us. >> and still ahead does the president need congressional approval before attacking syria? >> would you attack and what would it looks like and what would the targets be? >> retired general is with us next live. >> and look at your three options for video of the day. log on. the winner will one in it's entirety at the end of the show. option number one from
6:11 pm
crossroadsgps. >> the 2700 page obama health care law is going into effect. >> we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it. >> you need to get ready for it. tablets. dulcolax is comfort-coated for gentle, over-night relief. dulcolax. predictable over-night relief you can count on.

6:13 pm
absolutely thank goodness. mrs. villain and i are planning our... you scare me. and i like it. let's go what's in your wallet?
6:14 pm
welcome back to hannity, a third cruise ship is moving into
6:15 pm
the med craiterranean sea. the white house has said that the goal would not be for a regime change. cries missiles have a range of 1,000 miles. the country has many chemical facilities that could be on the target list since the strike would be in retaliation to the attack that the white house says was ordered by the assad regime. and various missile bases that could be hit as well. if for a briefing is retired army general jack keen. welcome sir to the program, good to see you. >> good to see you, sean.
6:16 pm
>> if you were called in and president obama says i want to go forward and i want to strike what targets would you sougt? >> i would take a strategic view of this and not punish him for the chemical weapons. that is actually tipping the happen to the brits. they insisted on that statement. there is much we can do to shift the momentum which is in assad's favor. one provide them training and they are in the lead and the opposition forces now. secondly, clearly what needs to be done is have assad move significant military capability as a result of what he has done. don't spread these cruise
6:17 pm
missiles all over the place to the point where we don't concentrate and focus on reducing capability. one of the most vulnerable capabilities is air power. less than 100 airplanes take down the fuel storage, take out the command and control on those six primary fields and his air power is reduced dramatically and that reduces the weapons that they need. >> you talk about the moderates as though they would be the likely successor. i probably would have agree wednesd agreed with you. many of the forces have
6:18 pm
disbanded and it seems there are radical jihadists. >> there are some facts, sean. the fact of the matter is the moderates are in the lead. the jihadists are not much in the fight anymore they are trying to impose 7th century talibanism and have separated from the moderates. what the moderates need are the resources that the jihadists were given early on. the saudis weren't given the numbers that they should be given. we are not giving them all the weapons that they should be
6:19 pm
given. >> you have the most optimistic view that i have heard. with all due respect, i don't mean any disrespect here, what if you were wrong and the potential for greater conflict exists, is this something this civil war do we even need to be involved in it? >> certainly, i'm not suggesting that i know what the outcome is. but i do know that there is much that we can do to assist the moderates. i find it rather hard to believe that tens of thousands of syrians are fighting a brutal dictator. they have been dying 100,000 dead now and you are going to tell me that a relatively small group a few thousand foreign
6:20 pm
fighters would take over the country and they would stand for that? that is the logic that you are proposing to me? >> general, i was probably five people in the public that predicted that the muslims would take over radicalization in syria, those numbers are very high. i think the numbers that support that law are far greater than what i suspect you are thinking. >> let me tell you, the lack of accurate information of what we are talking about is stunning. what has happened in the north where they are imposing 7th century -- the people do not accept that kind of behavior modification change. it is similar to what took place
6:21 pm
in iraq with the so-called awakening after al qaeda had imposed their will for two years in the sunnis in that area. most of the islamists do not want to kneel under that rule. >> let's assume for a second that you are right. we must factor in the ruthlessness under which they want to advance their calafate and the methods that they would intimidate the population. there is a risk that whatever bombing we could be involved in could help them you are not denying that are you? >> both could be strengthened by what is taking place. but i'm absolutely convinced in my own mind that this is an opportunity, sean.
6:22 pm
we can make a laundry list like senator paul did and talk about all of the things that go wrong frankly, this administration has been paralyzed by the fear of adverse consequence since they came into office. this is the opportunity for the united states to say we are not going to stand for this and i hope the administration will do this. >> you really believe that a three day campaign of cruise z missiles will accomplish that? you really think it will make that big of a difference? >> you can do it in less than three days. you have to understand the numbers and the targets. listen we are dead wrong in not having completed the strike already. in my mind we should have in
6:23 pm
fo formed them already and then strike and here we are going through all this. this is not going to war this is a limited military action similar to what clinton did against al qaeda in afghanistan. we are not committing this nation to war. >> the only thing i would say general i wish i was wrong on the muslim brotherhood in egypt and i hope i'm wrong here. we could pave the way for another radical movement. >> so you suggest we ring our hands and do nothing? >> my recommendation this civil war has been going on for years. 100,000 dead and 250,000 refugees. if anything i think the united
6:24 pm
states role should be humanitarian. >> then what about iran? >> what if we end up bringing al qaeda to power that would be dangerous wouldn't it? >> the only way to deal with them is to stand up to them not roll over. >> but we don't have the stomach to go beyond three days. >> that is not a fight that is just checking the box to say i did it. >> thank you. take it easy. >> next they all called the president george w. bush at the time so why are these men flip-floping now that they are the ones in charge. >> also tonight, you get to weigh in and select our video of the day. here is a sneak peak at the second possibility the number one rated king of late night
6:25 pm
that nbc is dumb enough to let go a second time. >> vice president joe biden said today that syria must be held accou accountable. unfortunately the obama administration has never employed an accountant so we don't know how to do that. in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms obph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess with cialis. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than 4 hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision,

6:29 pm
so if russia blocks action to the un. >> they already have. >> and congress is on recess, we'll consult them but we won't have a vote. what happened to the barack obama of 2008 who said you have to get congressional authorization before you go to military action. >> that is a predispoization that has not been made. >> i'm not going to parse the president's word that is he conducted with pbs. >> >> asking the questions that everyone wants to know the answers to. here to explain the constitutional matter is the author of the blarand new book, "things that matter", our good
6:30 pm
friend charles krauthammer. good to see you. >> good to be here. >> thank you very much. >> the president does not have the power to u nxt inunilateral authorize stopping a threat to the nation. >> now he can be as hypocritical as he wants because he is not up for re-election. remember, there is no surprise here. when he did the libya operation he didn't consult with congress either. suspending a piece of obamacare here and there, suspending the immigration laws this is a man for whom the constitution is a suggestion nothing more. >> what do you make of having
6:31 pm
telegraphed basically everything that we are going to do here charles? >> i find it staggering. in fact just a few hours ago. they gave even more specific detail about the targets on the outskirts of damascus, i mean are they going to announce the times that the bombs are going to fall so that they won't disturb dinner in damascus. they come out with all the detail, they basically say we are going in and then everything falls apart. it showed the administration that cannot even organize a three-party coalition. >> yeah, when you look at they told them what the weapons are, what the duration is going to be. they are going to be limited capacity.
6:32 pm
one must ask the next logical question what is the purpose then? well that is the view i have and i'm sure we share it. that it has no purpose whatsoever unless it is to asuage the guilty conscious of a president or whose word means nothing because last year he spoke about a red line and has allowed all of the red lines to be crossed without lifting a finger. but you don't take a country into war as a way to vindicate your own standing. you do it to achieve strategic objectives. and if you are going to do a three day strike in syria altering the course of that civil war then the whole exercise is pointless and
6:33 pm
dangerous. >> let's talk about the danger. it is towards ii ii israel. if i'm israel i'd be saying really? you going to put us in this position? >> realm in the gulf war in the 1990s israel was attacked and jews after the second world war are never going to cow weather they are attacked. we asked them to stay out so not to disrupt the coalition. they have made clear that if syria or hezbollah or iran attacks, they are not going to respond with the prime minister, you will not have your proportional response it will be a fierce response. and what is possible here is by
6:34 pm
doing what obama things is he turns his ship around and goes over the horizon and nothing happens. if there is retaliation i think it is unlikely. but if the iranians or the syrians attack israel. we could be in a guns of august situation where a regional war breaks out. if iran attacked to actually attack it's nuclear facilities. i think it would open the door for them to do that and the world would probably condemn it initially. it would be seen as the right thing to do. if they were lucky enough even though it is not their stated goal or mission to take out assad. >> i'm not sure that conclusion
6:35 pm
is right. i've listened to general jack keen and others who have been on the ground and studied the information. their view is that they are not involved in the battle and the moderates still have the upper hand. i think there is not a foregone conclusion. it doesn't have to happen and it didn't have to happen had obama intervened a year ago when the outcome would have been very differe different. 30 years ago it would be more pro american but their ranks have fallen over the last year? >> absolutely. and our situation now is far more dire. >> we look forward to your new took. it is going to be for sale on i think i was wrong about my

this and deficits of foreign policy, bad economy, it's all because you're racist. watch. >> you've got people talking about nullification of the law of the land. you got people talking impeachment like coburn. tom crews out there. they never say the problem with him is black. look at the pattern. the daughters of the american revolution knew what they were saying and said it out loud. she's black, she can't sing here. these guys today use all the techniques of nullification and talking about i will legitimacy and accusing the president of being a crook. they talk about impeaching him on grounds that he can't come up with. at least, in the old days, they were honest about it. today, they're not. he has lost his mind. >> yeah. >> let's try to follow the logic of dr. matthews here. first he says if you're a republican or a conservative opposed to any policy of barack
